The Department of Psychology at Penn State (http://psych.la.psu.edu/) is recruiting for a systems or computational neuroscientist (open rank) with expertise in advanced data analysis techniques (e.g., graph theory, meta-analysis, data mining, structural equation modeling) as applied to neuroimaging (fMRI, EEG) data. Candidates with expertise in how structural or functional connectivity relates to behavior are especially encouraged to apply. We prefer candidates at the associate professor level or higher who can contribute leadership to the growing neuroscience and imaging communities, but we will consider outstanding junior candidates. The position is co-funded by the Children, Youth, and Families Consortium (http://www.ssri.psu.edu/cyfc/), and successful applicants are expected to participate in and contribute to the Social, Life, and Engineering Sciences Imaging Center (http://www.imaging.psu.edu). Participation in and contribution to the Graduate Program in Neuroscience (http://www.huck.psu.edu/education/neuroscience) and the Center for Brain, Behavior, and Cognition (http://cbbc.psu.edu/) would be welcome. Rich opportunities exist for collaboration within the department’s substantive focal areas (cognitive, developmental, social, clinical, and industrial/organizational psychology) and across the campus. Applicants who could also contribute to an overarching department initiative to enhance diversity and our understanding of diversity are particularly encouraged to apply. Candidates are expected to have a record of excellence in research and teaching, and a history or promise of external funding. Review of applications for the position begins November 1, 2012 and will continue until the position is filled. Candidates should submit a letter of application including concise statements of research and teaching interests, a CV, and selected (p)reprints. Junior candidates should submit at least three letters of recommendation; letters of recommendation for senior candidates will be requested from those selected as finalists. Electronic submission is strongly preferred; please submit materials at www.la.psu.edu/facultysearch/ .
